  • Marr is best predictor at Pace Race

    Duane Marr was the top predictor at this week’s Pace Race.
    The Pace Race, a weekly event hosted by the Atomic City Roadrunners, was held Tuesday in the Quemazon subdivision. The Quemazon Climb/Decadent Table Dessert Run featured a big climb up Quemazon Road toward the Perimeter Trail and attracted 16 runners and walkers.
    Marr, who competed on the 1-mile course Tuesday, was 24 seconds off his predicted finish time. He topped Tom Sanford, who was 30 seconds off. No other competitor Tuesday finished with a prediction error of under two minutes.
    On the 1-mile course, Anya Gonzales was the top finisher, completing her run in 13:38. On the 3-mile course, Jamie Jablin was the top finisher with his time of 21:41, while Sammy Keie finished in 33:04.

  • LA steamrolls Moriarty, 8-0

    The Los Alamos Hilltopper girls soccer team took nine shots in the first 10 minutes, connecting on two of them to set the tempo for a whitewashing Thursday afternoon in White Rock.
    The Hilltopper offense ran roughshod over the Moriarty Pintos back line in the first half Thursday, connecting on three goals in the first 13 minutes. The Pintos would never mount any kind of serious attack as the Hilltoppers rolled to an 8-0 victory at the Paul Spirio Soccer Complex.
    The score might have been worse had Los Alamos not misfired on two open-goal opportunities and Moriarty goalkeeper Taylor Luker not stopped two well-placed balls in the first half.

  • Toppers hold on in shootout to win

    Second verse, same as the first.
    The 2010 state champion Los Alamos Hilltopper boys soccer team rarely failed to keep fans on the edges of their seats and the 2011 Hilltoppers picked up right where their predecessors left off in Thursday’s season opener.
    Los Alamos came back from a 1-0 deficit midway through the second half Thursday against the Rio Rancho Rams. After two scoreless overtime periods, Los Alamos picked up a 4-2 shootout victory to take its season opening contest 2-1 over the Rams at Dara Jones Field in White Rock.
    Henry Steinkamp, assisted by Cooper Christensen, found the net in the 62nd minute Thursday, answering a goal 19 minutes earlier by Rio Rancho midfielder Josh Trujillo.

  • LA looks to keep confidence level up this year

    An impressive showing during the summer has the Los Alamos Hilltopper volleyball team filled with confidence going into the 2011 season.
    But with a tough early season schedule, the Hilltoppers could well need all the confidence they can muster.
    Los Alamos opens its 2011 campaign Saturday afternoon at home. It will host a very tough customer, the Pojoaque Elks, to kick off the season.

  • Hilltoppers close out Eagles in 68 minutes to win opener

    The weather was hot and so was the Los Alamos Hilltopper girls soccer team’s offense in its season opener Tuesday.
    The Hilltoppers scored six times in a 25-minute span during the second half Tuesday to close out their opener against the Belen Eagles. Five different Hilltoppers got into the scoring column in the second half as Los Alamos crushed Belen 10-0 in 68 minutes.
    The temperature hovered near 100 degrees at Belen, so Los Alamos head coach Jiri Kubicek kept shuffling personnel in and out of the game.
    Those that got into the game responded very well.
    “Belen doesn’t show much,” Kubicek said. “It was pretty one-sided, but it was a good way to get started.”

  • 'Toppers looking for a repeat performance in 2011

    It was one of the crowning moments in the history of Los Alamos High School boys soccer.

    In 2010, the Los Alamos Hilltoppers thumped the Belen Eagles in the Class 4A championship game, 4-0, to claim its first state title in 24 years.

    But that was then and this is now. With nine seniors, most of them starters, graduating from that team it would seem unlikely the 2011 Hilltoppers will be in the same position to contend.

    Or is it? The Hilltoppers don’t seem to think so.

    “I feel like we’re confident this year,” Hilltopper Zeke Zumbro said during practice Tuesday as the team preps for its season opener Thursday. “Last year, we were really confident and I feel the same confidence this year.”

  • Work on Sullivan Field is still ongoing

    Things are still progressing at Sullivan Field, although not as quickly as Los Alamos High School’s athletic department was hoping.
    Workers from Academy Sports Turf of Englewood, Colo., began laying down the new artificial surface at Sullivan Field this weekend and as of Monday had much of the football playing area on the ground.
    However, the renovation at Sullivan Field, which began in mid-May and was scheduled to wrap up on or about Aug. 18, has fallen well behind schedule.
